Van Nuys Airport - Clay Lacy Aviation, Van Nuys, CA
Introducing EAA Aviation Experience 2011!
EAA Aviation Experience is a different kind of event. There is a lot to see, but it’s not just about watching. It’s all about flying. Participating. Working together and having important conversations about the future of aviation. Bring the family. Bring a friend. Are you a pilot? An aviation enthusiast? Have a friend who’s “always wanted to fl y”? Maybe you know a young person who’d like to take a EAA Chapter 40 Young Eagles flight. Bring ‘em along. EAA Aviation Experience 2011 is the event for all. You don’t have to be an EAA member, but you’ll meet lots of friendly folks who are.

Rod Hightower’s Grassroots Pilot Tour
You’re invited to join our new EAA President/CEO Rod Hightower and local California EAA Chapters for a fun, informative evening on Saturday, April 16. We’ll have a casual social hour starting at 6 p.m. Rod will present his Grassroots Pilot Tour program at 7 p.m. We’ll be talking about the leading aviation issues of our time, and what EAA is doing to grow participation in aviation. Admission is free. You don’t have to be an EAA member to attend. Friends & family also welcome!
To assist us with planning for the evening event, we encourage you to RSVP at www.eaa.org/grassroots.

Airplanes. And more airplanes.
Our B-17 isn’t the only warbird you’ll see on the ramp at EAA Aviation Experience 2011. There’s no telling what you’ll see: P-51 Mustangs, T-6s, and more. Up close and personal. Not to mention a DC-2, F-7-F Tigercat, Learjet, homebuilts, and experimental aircraft. All will be on display Saturday and Sunday.

Meet Captain Sullenberger
Stop by and say hello to the heroic “Miracle on the Hudson” pilot and Young Eagles Co-Chairman Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger on Saturday, April 16. From 6 to 7 p.m., Sully will sign his New York Times bestseller Highest Duty, which will be available for purchase.
